Abstract

The objective of the current study was to compare general health in pregnant women with gestational diabetes and healthy pregnant women. The method of this study was descriptive following a casual-comparative design. The statistical population included 9666 pregnant women referred to healthcare centers in Zahedan in 2016. The method of sampling was multistage cluster sampling, such that among all healthcare centers in Zahedan, 5 healthcare centers were randomly selected. Afterwards, using the convenience sampling method, the research questionnaires were distributed among 50 pregnant women with a history of gestational diabetes and 50 healthy pregnant women without such a history. To collect data, Goldberg and Hillier General Health Questionnaire (1979) was used. The results of multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) indicated that somatic symptoms, anxiety symptoms/sleep disorders, and depression symptoms were more prevalent among women with gestational diabetes compared to healthy pregnant women (P≤ 0.05). However, considering social dysfunction symptoms, no significant difference was found between these two groups of pregnant women with and without gestational diabetes (P≥0.05)
